I agree with dave...looks good but the balloon, in particular the basket looks a little too sharp mate.

cheers bullet

Edit : maybe too bright too mate...contrast looks too good compared to the background.

Maybe place the ballon a little diffrent. It looks a bit odd with the top of the balloon at the same level as the horizion.

First up, look at some balloon references, your balloon is too squat. Look here for some reference images.

The basket is also a bit too small.

Bristol Balloon Fiesta

Hope these help.

the lighting looks blown out and the material on the balloon just looks like a simple blinn. you could try adding some noise like a bump map or something. Also the specular highlight doesnt seem to effect the logo.

are you thinking of doing some cloth to make it ripple a bit? do they ripple in the wind? i'm not sure.

also are you rendering in linear? the backplate looks a lot brighter in the second image. Whats with the crazy resolution size btw?

this was a basic texture test i tried using a bump map but apparently its not visible at that distance

From my reference videos balloons dont look like i need to be using cloth simulations

The high resolution is for a projector
